antique timuri carpet timuri tribes western afghanistan

Antique Timuri Carpet, Timuri Tribes, Western Afghanistan.



Item Ref



The best Timuri carpet I've ever laid my eys upon! I can honestly say that. The carpet is superb in every way - a date of mid 19th century, very good condition but more importantly, a fabulous wealth of vegetable colours ranging from deep indigo-blue, sky blue, turquoise, aubergine, madder-red, corroded dark brown, highlights of ivory and a tiny amount of yellow. The flat-woven skirts are intact although were possibly slightly longer when first made. The four large archaic lozenges on either side of the six 'snowflake' motifs in the central field contain typical Timuri 'trees'. The whole carpet gives a feeling of immense power and is a magnificent testament to the much under-appreciated work of the Timuri.
Size: 2.92m x 2.08m (9' 7" x 6' 10").
Viewing by appointment only.
